Greetings from Alewives Fabrics!
Our shop is housed in a three story red barn in the tiny little village of Damariscotta Mills in beautiful Midcoast Maine. For over 11 years, Alewives has been owned and operated by the mother/daughter team of Barbara Neeson and Rhea Butler. We offer a carefully curated selection of contemporary textiles including quilting cottons, linen/cotton blends, chambray, Liberty Tana Lawn, double gauze, vinyl laminate, cotton voile, flannel, rayon and much, much more.
We run a busy webstore that sends fabric all over the globe, offer long arm quilting machine services, and hold workshops & events in our spacious classroom. Alewives has a dozen employees (in fact, Barbara and Rhea are just one of three mother/daughter teams working at Alewives Fabrics!) and we're very proud and blessed to be a locally-owned, family-run business!
SouleMama: Since the last time you were featured on SouleMama, in what ways has your business grown or changed?
Rhea: Since our last Soulemama feature, Alewives Fabrics has become a Quince&Co. Flagship store! We now carry a huge selection of Quince&Co. yarns, including all 5 wool yarns (Finch, Chickadee, Lark, Osprey and Puffin), plus linen yarn and wool blend yarn (Sparrow, Tern, Piper, Owl and Owl Tweet). We also carry a full line of knitting notions, along with lots of the Quince&Co. patterns and knitting books. We've had an amazing customer response to the Quince yarns, and who wouldn't love a shop that carries delicious fabrics and delectable yarns, too? Customers say that we are deadly to their wallets, and I have to confess, we try to be as "deadly" as possible!
